Amash congratulates Betsy DeVos on nomination as secretary of education

WASHINGTON, D.C. – Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) issued the following statement upon President-elect Donald Trump’s nomination of Betsy DeVos as secretary of education:

Congratulations to Betsy DeVos on her nomination as secretary of education. She is a friend, a resident of Michigan's Third District, and a longtime community leader. I can think of few people as prepared to meet the challenges ahead.

Betsy is intelligent, creative, experienced, and passionate about reforming education. I look forward to working with her to empower parents and local communities, advance school choice and competition, protect the right of homeschooling, and stop federal mandates and harmful initiatives like Race to the Top and Common Core.
